My father told me to "Catch Them Young"

Sunday. My father woke me up as always (the best part about mornings). Except that today I was told in a very serious tone that I had to get ready to go to church (by my Hindu dad married to my Catholic mom *love*, so it's normal) to register myself with my age and photo for the newly started "Catch Them Young" programme. And I fell for it. 

Turns out that this "Catch Them Young" is a made-up programme by my father in which all kids who have attained marriageable age (which makes me eligible because I'm 18+) have to register. Basically this thing aims at matchmaking maybe because kids nowadays are going astray or whatever and choosing all the wrong kinds of life partners. So my dad felt it wise to enroll his only daughter in "Catch Them Young" (what a name, I really thought this was real).

Really. Indian parents love knows no bounds. 

Disclaimer - "Catch Them Young" does not exist in reality. And I don't plan on getting married anytime soon! *wink*

Sab Ganda Hai, Par Sab Dhandha Hai - Maha Govt Plot Twist

Everyone looks forward to weekends for the simple reason that they get to relax, unwind and recharge themselves for another hectic workweek. But not the Maharashtra Govt. Atleast not this weekend. In between Friday night and Saturday early morning, our State Govt proved to us that if they put their minds to getting something done, they will; even if it involves staying up post their working hours. Hail Politics and Self - Interest! I guess it's pretty apparent by now what this writeup is going to be about. But no. I won't bore you with that anymore. Instead, I'll include a few links to help you catch up:

I just came to know ALL these products belong to HUL (Hindustan Unilever) and I'm shook

Two years ago my teacher sent the entire class on an assignment as part of our Principles of Marketing subject in which we had to visit different retail outlets and check which company manufactured them. I remember going to one such place with 3 other class mates, with Note Pad open in our phones and discreetly clicking pictures of all HUL products. It sort of felt weird at first because we had never done the picture clicking part before, but slowly got used to it as soon as we realized that the line of HUL products was just never ending. We submitted the assignment the next day and that was the end of the story. But just yesterday, I opened the HUL website again as part of my semester  VI Logistics subject assignment (yes I do get homework even in TY!). I was surprised by the products that I saw.
